Product Description

ASI1600MM Pro Cooled Astrophotography Camera

(Notice?Cooled cameras need a 12v power adapter, I have included one for this camera as an extra).

DDR Memory Buffer

DDR memory buffer is the main difference between ASI “Cool” and “Pro” cameras.

Pro camera includes a 256MB DDR3 memory buffer to help improve data
transfer reliability. Additionally, the use of a memory buffer minimizes
amp-glow, which is caused by the slow transfer speeds when the camera
is used with a USB 2.0 port.


Astrophotography Performance

ASI1600 Pro offers very good performance for astrophotography. Low read noise, Low dark current, high dynamic range .

build in 12bit ADC but can provide 12.5 stops dynamic range which is
even better than KAF8300 due to its super low read noise.

We suppose the QE peak value is more than 60%.


Dark Current

Reliable Mechanical Structures

There are four screws that seal the sensor chamber. Our camera design has been extensively tested and is very stable.

Even when used in higher humidity environments, ASI1600 Pro will still works fine without dew problems.

USB 3.0 Port & USB2.0 HUB

USB 3.0 Port:
Provides 5Gb bandwidth to make it possible for ASI1600 Pro to run at
14.7 fps (12bit, normal mode) or 23 fps (10bit, high speed mode) at full
resolution (16Mega).USB 2.0 HUB:
Can connect with various accessories,  including a filter wheel, guide
camera or electronic focuser, allowing you to manage your cables better.
There are two short 0.5m USB2.0 cables included with the ASI1600 Pro.
The hub is powered by the external power supply if you connect one.

Cooling System

ASI1600 Pro
has 2 stage TEC cooling system to enable very deep cooling (40°C-45°C
below ambient). The cooler requires an external power supply, which is
not included with the camera. You may order a suitable power supply from

We recommend using a 12V/3-5A or more DC adapter for cooler power supply (2.1×5.5, center positive).Using a battery with 9-15V is also suitable for the cooler power supply.
